American & Transnational Law Programs

Our graduate degree programs in American & Transnational Law, a Master of Laws (LL.M.) and a Master in the Study of Law (M.S.L.), focus on the American legal system and laws that transcend national boundaries. Optional certificates in cyber and intellectual property law are available to students interested in pursuing an additional specialization. 

Degrees offered to both lawyers and non-lawyers

Our graduate degrees and certificates are offered to both lawyers and non-lawyers from the United States and abroad. 

Students with a J.D. degree from an accredited U.S. law school may earn an LL.M. degree by completing 24 credits of course work, often in less than nine months of study.

LL.M. degrees are available for international students who have already earned a first degree in law from a foreign university upon the completion of 30 credits of course work.

U.S. and international students who do not have a law degree may earn a Master's Degree in the Study of Law, an M.S.L. degree, by completing 30 credits of course work on a full-time or part-time basis.
